About:Here's the deal; I'm an old fart. My wife and I have been together for over 30 years. We have 2 grown kids. I was a Peace Corps volunteer in Kenya, spent some years wandering Africa then joined the US Navy. I recently retired at 57 from a government job because I could ;) I have spent the last 30 years or so accumulating equipment for a very sweet shop, complete with a CNC lathe and milling machine, drill press, CNC router, welders, 3 in 1 sheet metal machine, wire and oxyacetylene welders. I also have every woodworking machine known to man as well as a well equipped garage. I am somewhat as a pack rat so I have motorcycles, garden tractors, assorted electronic devices and machines, and parts enough to build a death Star if I so wished. I do work on guns and weaponry, I have a Federal Firearms License I also have an Amateur radio license (HAM radio). I hope to start doing some Instructables soon. I am a cat aficionado and have a Snowshoe Siamese named Dexter.
